It offers the perfect location to explore all that Norfolk has to offer being an ideal base for those wishing to visit the local historical houses and gardens, for walkers, cyclists and bird-watchers and the stunning North Norfolk beaches are just 25 minutes drive away. We’re surrounded by tranquil countryside offering lots of great dog-walking in our own paddock or on the network of pathways around us. Guests walking to Peddars Way will pass by our resident alpacas en route to the award winning Dabbling Duck Pub & restaurant in the local village. Accommodation comprises: - Fully equipped kitchen (oven, hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, dish-washer) and adjacent utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer & laundry facilities. - Entrance hall, and wc - Lovely spacious lounge with wood-burner, TV & DVD, 2 leather sofas and further sofa-bed to accommodate a further 2 guests - Master bedroom with Norfolk made, wrought-iron king- size bed and en-suite bathroom (bath with mains pressure shower over, WC and sink) - Pretty twin room, with 2 wrought-iron single beds and en-suite bathroom (walk-in shower) - An additional double room with en-suite is available to accommodate a further 2 guests if required to sleep up to 8 guests overall (additional costs apply) Facilities: - WiFi throughout - On arrival guests are greeted with flowers, homemade cake and a welcome pack of basic provisions. - Luxurious linen and towels are provided - A cot and highchair are available on request Dogs are very welcome at The Dairy (typically 2 although we may accept more by arrangement so please contact us to discuss) with access to a fully-fenced exercise paddock right outside your back door. There are loads of pathways to explore within the 4 acres of West Heath Barn land and far beyond. Our second barn, The Cart Lodge, is directly across the courtyard from The Dairy and sleeps 4, making it the perfect option for large families, groups of couples or multi-generational holidays. Read our generous reviews on Trip Advisor (you'll find them most of them as West Heath Barn and a few more as The Dairy in Great Massingham) to get a flavour of all The Dairy has to offer (April 2017 “having stayed in various places across Norfolk The Dairy at West Heath Barn has to be one of the best ... our hosts, Gill and Dave, were very friendly and accommodating ... facilities are first class both for people and dogs, and the location is perfect'). Change-over day for weekly rentals is Saturday. We also offer short breaks out of peak season (October to April). Please note that price per day shown for short breaks is based on a 3 night stay - 4, 5 and 6 night stays are at a lower daily rate. Request a quote for the number of days you require.More

About the neighbourhood
Less than a mile from Great Massingham, one of Norfolk’s prettiest villages, and adjacent to Peddars Way National Trail, West Heath Barn is an ideal base for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer. We’re close to a wide range of attractions from walking or cycling on Peddars Way to the magnificent historic houses and country estates including Sandringham, Houghton Hall and Oxburgh Hall and more. The stunning Norfolk coast is less than 30 minutes drive away, offering 60+ miles of sandy beaches, marshlands and big skies. Birdwatchers are within easy reach of Snettisham and Titchwell bird reserves. Burnham Market and Holt offer chic retail therapy and the fabulous cities of Norwich and Cambridge are less than an hour away.
Getting around
We'd advise to get the best out of this area, you do need a car unless the primary purpose of your holiday is to walk the network of paths that surround us.
